SolidWorks 2D Editor

What is SolidWorks 2D Editor?

Building a model in SolidWorks usually starts with a 2D sketch. The sketch consists of geometry such as points, lines, arcs, conics (except the hyperbola), and splines. Dimensions are added to the sketch to define the size and location of the geometry. Relations are used to define attributes such as tangency, parallelism, perpendicularity, and concentricity. The parametric nature of SolidWorks means that the dimensions and relations drive the geometry, not the other way around.


The most common release is 19.30.66, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The setup package generally installs about 42 files and is usually about 590.11 KB (604,274 bytes).
